Have a look below what we got up to on the night!
Exclusive to the National Gallery of Victoria and featuring nearly 50 stunning, vividly coloured Van Gogh masterpieces, the exhibition is inspired by Vincent Van Gough’s love for autumn and adoration of Japanese art. Before entering each season’s gallery, you'll first be welcomed by a 9-minute intro video to learn about Van Gogh history.
You'll then explore the seasons, how Van Gogh connected to his artwork with each stroke, and witness how each painting carried within it soul the emotions of the painter soul. The Seasons explores this visionary artist’s profound connection to the seasons – spring-time, with its blossoming orchards and flowering meadows; summer, with fields of ripe wheat shimmering under the hot sun; autumn, with bountiful harvests and solitary figures sowing seeds; and winter, with peasants digging potatoes out of frozen fields.
When gazing, you'll almost feel like you're looking out of a window, seeing beyond the seasons.
Here are five reasons why you should see Van Gogh and The Seasons.
1) To learn! I only knew small parts about Vincent Van Gogh’s life. His paintings tell a story about his life, personal struggles and him dealing with his health. Also what inspired him to paint and what he did during those seasons shines through his work.
2) You'll be taken on a seasonal journey. You'll enter the surroundings of Winter, taken right into Summer and waltz through spring in a way that only art can instigate.
3) See his art change throughout the years, and be prepared to be catching yourself gazing at one picture for 20 minutes, I know I did.
4) Feel the art, see nature blossoming through the eyes of another.
5) See his paintings up close, learn his artist work, see his brush strokes, admire the art that has made such a mark on the industry.

PANDORA is a well-known household favourite, a gift given by friends or loved ones, and of course treating yourself. As you know Foxes I love the brand, I love how you can stack up your rings and bracelets and collect new charms for your collection.
But, have you ever been curious to know how Pandora jewellery is made? Did you even know that each piece was handmade?
before attending the workshop I had no idea how PANDORA created their beautiful pieces that most of us wear every day. PANDORA jewellery passes through an average of 30pairs of hands, from creation to the finished product.
PANDORA uses traditional methods of production such as moulding and casting jewellery.
Brunch was served at Crown towers as we watched the craftsman live in action set each cubic zirconia delicately to perfection. It was so intriguing to experience watching how PANDORA is made!
Bloggers were also welcomed to join in and were able to create their own custom piece of PANDORA.
Thank you PANDORA for an exciting morning.
Lights dimmed as the Camilla & Marc runway was about to commence. A light show worthy of VAMFF beamed across the interior of The Royal Exhibition Building, settling as all eyes focused on the phenomenal 21 piece orchestra.
The strings played a strong entrancing music, creating a memorable experience as the show began. It was a truly unforgettable entrance as the models commenced their mission down the 9 meter, dusty pink carpeted runway.
The evening provided us with nothing but the superb quality of modern day luxe, the collection exuding a moody vibe. With strong feminine silhouettes, mixed with their signature military style blazers, sung down the runway.
Along with gentle floral pieces and lush laces, came rich greens and mellow whites. Shirt layering with dress shirts and casual tees; and power-dressing in the form of boxy silhouettes, not to mention slinky blouses and dresses with just the right amount of drape and flow - everything was at play.
I hope you enjoyed this segment foxes! Until next time...
